THE Jaguar I-PACE now offers more driver-focused technology than ever, with the addition of Amazon Alexa, and new options to enhance its multi-award-winning design, including an impressive premium black pack.
The all-electric performance SUV becomes the first Jaguar to feature Amazon Alexa voice control. Seamlessly integrated, it provides natural voice interaction with the Pivi Pro infotainment system features including navigation, media playback, and phone calls.
Requests such as ‘Alexa, navigate me to home’, ‘Alexa, play my chill-out playlist’ and ‘Alexa show me nearby coffee shops’ can all be done by voice. You can also check the news, the weather and manage your schedule or shopping list – just by asking.
In an Australian market first, existing owners of Australian delivered I-PACE models with Pivi Pro, are among more than 1,300 Jaguar customers that will be offered Alexa in a software-over-the-air update.
Likewise, all new Jaguar Land Rover vehicles with Pivi Pro will come with Alexa. The Alexa voice experience is intuitive to use, and even makes it possible to control compatible smart home features such as heating and lighting, from your I-PACE.
You only have to ask: ‘Alexa, set the living room temperature to 20 degrees’, for example. As well as the Amazon platform, the I-PACE now comes with the Smartphone Pack, with wireless Apple CarPlay as standard.
Wireless Android Auto is also standard. In addition, Pivi Pro can connect two phones simultaneously, and an optional wireless device charging pad beneath the centre console features a signal booster to improve network reception and Wi-Fi.
Before the journey even begins, the I-PACE’s preferred charging period feature enables customers to set a desired start and finish time for charging – helping them take advantage of reduced rate electricity tariffs available in many markets.
It can also let you set a specific state-of-charge you want the battery to reach – 80 per cent, for example. Customers who wish to enhance the I-PACE’s design can now choose a Premium Black Pack option, giving even more visual impact and presence.
This brings a Gloss Black finish to the grille, grille surround, side window surrounds, door mirror caps and rear badges, together with striking 22-inch ‘Style 5056’ split-spoke wheels finished in Gloss Black, a rear spoiler and air suspension.
The I-PACE is also now available in Ostuni White for the first time as well. This beautiful metallic finish joins the existing range of solid, metallic and premium metallic paints.
